The Morinu Tofu Story
In 1985, Morinaga Nutritional Foods Inc. of Torrance, California began marketing aseptically packaged silken style tofu in the United States under the Mori-Nu brand name.Morinaga helped to develop a revolutionary new packaging process that seals in all the wholesome nutrition of tofu in an airtight, shelf-stable package.
Tofu, a custard-like food made from soybeans, is a complete protein containing all eight essential amino acids. Free from saturated fat and cholesterol, tofu is the primary source of protein for over a billion people every day. Traditionally, silken style tofu (called "kinugoshi" in Japanese) has a texture so delicate and smooth that it seems to have been strained through silk. View the Mori-Nu website.
Today Mori-Nu Silken Firm Tofu is sold by Real Foods into selected supermarkets and food service outlets throughout New Zealand bringing you a dairy free, low-fat, heart-healthy vegetable protein ideal for entrées & desserts.
